Paki Leaks Memo – Pakistan Sate of the Union 2010

Posted by yourpakistan on December 21, 2010


It may be fake or fictitious but the 62 years sordid history of Pakistan is beautifully summed up in a very coherent but abridged form. The actual situation on the ground is truly depicted in this [no authentic source ]“Official Diplomatic Report”….

End 2010 summary analysis on Pakistan is being forwarded. The detailed
report is being sent separately by diplomatic pouch. The Government of India (GOI) strategic planning directive for Pakistan of 2000 clearly states our aim; to undermine the Pakistan Sate internally and externally with the intent to weaken it to such an extent, where it does not pose any further threat to GOI regional goals. With this in mind we have executed a cohesive plan to internally disrupt the country and to undermine  it on all international forums both overtly and covertly.

I am pleased to announce the Sate of the Union of Pakistan at the end of 2010, is currently most conducive for the furtherance of our goals. Our  efforts over the last sixty-three years seem to be coming to fruition. The  country has never been more polarized, lacking in leadership and  economically weakened. We anticipate that the time is nearing when we will  be able to achieve our strategic goals without use of overt military force.

This will be the highest tribute to the teachings of ‘Chankian’ philosophy,  which we have so assiduously pursued. Pakistan was created ostensibly in areas where Muslims were in majority. From its inception there was a divergence of goals resulting in a clear  division. This dichotomy has persisted and has taken a institutional form.

The two basic divisions are summarized: –

1) Group 1:Belonging to the mercantile classes, who wanted to protect and preserve their commercial and land interests. They formed the majority of the ruling class at partition and continue to do so today. We estimate it to be about five to ten percent of the population. To summarize, this group is characterized by being:

a) Mostly secularized and westernized: They do practice religion  nominally and have maintained its cultural trappings to a variable extent  but in essence religion to them has become a cultural phenomena and no longer holds any significant sway on their worldview. It has no relevance to what they perceive as their geopolitical center of gravity.

b) Privileged and above law: They are almost completely above the law;  in fact they are the law. If you are part of this group you are never  stopped by the police if stopped you never have to go to the courts, if indicted you almost never go to prison. They never wait in line; an army of  servants and facilitators help them live above the daily grind of what life  is in Pakistan for the rest of the ninety percent.

c) Economic apartheid: This group has access to the best living  conditions within palatial residential developments, gated communities with  private security. They have access to the best country clubs, hotels,  restaurants and golf courses. They have an inside track to lucrative jobs  and contracts. They travel freely and are found shopping and entertaining  more in Western and Mid Eastern capitals then in the country. It is an  incestuous club, were every one has a net worth and a network they depend  on. They all mutually help each other and thrive.

d) Educational apartheid: Their children go to elite schools mostly in the Cambridge system; the government (public) schools are not even an option for   them. Once they have done there ‘A’ levels the majority leaves for  universities in the West for higher education where they either end up  staying or return only to work at the helm of family businesses or to  lucrative jobs in the private or public sector.

e) This group is mostly Western and India centric; they have no  intrinsic cultural values and have learnt to appreciate and adopt western  and now Indian cultural norms as their own. Some even are nostalgic about  being part of greater India and reaping the benefits of the economic boom.  We need to work closely with their representatives and continue to emphasize  the futility of partition. The cultural assault by Bollywood needs to  continue and we need to use human rights and civil society organizations to  infiltrate their ranks even further.

2) Group 2: A segment that wanted to lay the foundation of an Islamic  State to be based on the laws derived from the Quran and the practice of The Prophet Muhammad (The Sunnah). This group has mostly degenerated into a  pathetic and ineffective hoard, unable to articulate a vision or strategic  leadership. It can be characterized by being:

a) Poorly educated: with focus on doctrinal minutiae and nuance, having  lost track of the dynamic core of the universal message that was once a historic force and resulted in changing the geopolitical map of the world. Only a small group remains that is making efforts to revive this spirit but   fortunately for us has found no traction.

b) Divisions into sects and subgroups: with esoteric doctrinal  differences, but significant difference in strategic approach. Rather than  agreeing on a minimal common platform they are at virtual war with each  other. Unyielding and unwilling to accommodate any divergent opinion. They  lack unity and a common purpose.

c) Absence of a cohesive and coherent alternative model: They have  failed to articulate an alternative paradigm to our western developmental  theory; nothing substantial that can catch the imagination of the masses.  d) Economically disenfranchised: They mostly come from the economic under  privileged class though some members of the educated salaried middle class  are increasingly joining them. This is a dangerous trend and we need to  develop a cohesive plan to prevent this hemorrhage.

e) We have successively infiltrated their ranks and our agencies can  instigate communal killings and sectarian violence almost at will. Our effort needs to continue to stoke the sectarian divide and prevent the  educated middle class form focusing on the ideological imperative of returning to its foundational ideals. We need to prevent them from serious  scholarship of their religious texts and continue to draw a wedge between  them and their co religionists.

Having lost its moorings and ideological underpinning that kept it united  the society has become fragmented to its constituent tribes and ethnicities. The leadership has disintegrated, and the lowest common denominator in the society has surfaced at the helm. The current so called leaders in large  part are totally inept and almost universally corrupt, this combination is  lethal for their country, but provides us with unfathomable opportunities.  The political parties continue to be weak, poorly lead and are mostly family  run oligarchies, with the perennial quest for power without purpose, goals without ideals and family over merit. The resultant effect is dysfunctional parties that are, inept and ineffective. They lack internal democratic  mechanism, which has resulted in the perpetuation of family fiefdoms. They do not have the capacity to bring about fundamental change the country needs.

The higher judiciaries has shown some independence but is stymied because of
the overall weak and corrupt legal and criminal justice system, which is on  the verge of collapse and does not serve the common good anymore. This has resulted in groups and individuals to take vigilante action, further  weakening the writ of the state.

The real danger to the furtherance of our policy objective comes from the Armed Forces; despite our best efforts we have not been able to infiltrate their leadership. It is surprising that it derives its rank and file from  such a highly fragmented polity, yet ends up in developing into a cohesive  organization with common purpose. The Armed Forces are one of the very few meritocracies in the country with an egalitarian ethic and continues to be  mostly well led. The greatest danger comes from its current leadership in General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. He comes from a non-elite background and can  be termed as the ‘common soldier’s general’. He has transformed the Army in  the last three years form its lowest ebb at the end of the Musharaf era, to  where it is now again an elite force commanding respect and veneration of  the people. His continuation in the leadership position is highly
detrimental to our strategy. We need to continue to make efforts to undermine him and make his personality controversial.

We have so far succeeded in creating a civil military divide but if a nexus was to form between the military and civil society, a dangerous situation could evolve which could result in galvanizing the middle class with the potential of revolutionary transformation. This would be very detrimental to our strategic aims and objectives and should be avoided at all costs.

Danger also comes from the growing cadres of youth that are idealistic and for some reason large segments of them, especially those belonging to the middle and low middle classes, still carry an ideological zeal. They could be organized and become the nidus of resistance against the status quo. We  need to continue the assault on this group through our media and other surrogates to dilute their fervor and to try and assimilate them into a  South Asian culture mosaic that we successfully potentate.

The corruption of the political class and bureaucracy coupled with the  extravagant lifestyles of the elite will ensure the continuation of a culture of dependency, which will keep the country on the brink of  bankruptcy and help us make significant inroads. We do not see this changing in the near term; no change seems possible from within the political structure. Our concern remains about a nexus between the military and elements of civil society becoming an agent of change.

We hope this analysis will help in laying the premise for the strategic reappraisal that is currently taking place; I am looking forward to participating in the dialogue in New Delhi at the end of the month.

Jai Hind

    Oh Com on Yaar, it is very clear that it is again one of those ISI fake wikileaks.

    Just look at the praise to the Army and Kayani. It clearly looks liek a sycophant wrote it.
